Good bye 2012, Hello 2013!
Just when I got used to writing 2012, I have to change it to 2013! Where did the year go, not to mention how fast! (sigh). Seems like it was only yesterday that I wrote down my “to dos” or “resolutions” for 2012 and now I have to come up with a whole new list…which will most definitely have some edited items from 2012! Making resolutions is not bad, the trick is to implement them. I’m not going to lie and say that I always carry out my resolutions (guilty). If that was the case, I wouldn’t have any right now!
So, (as the debate ensued with some friends) the question is, why do we make resolutions? The way I look at it, it is a step towards understanding ourself. I admit I have a few vices…workaholic, over achiever yet a procrastinator at times, getting my feelings hurt too easily…..I guess my biggest vice is that I don’t seize the moment and address it immediately. I assure you this blog post is not about bashing my own self but trying to get the message across that we all have some things that are the make-up of our “uniqueness” as an individual. There is nothing wrong with being who you are, as long as it doesn’t cross over into another’s space.
I look at a New Year as a chance to start afresh and the top most “to do/resolution” is going to be “go with the flow”. Don’t laugh! I know I’m the worst person when it comes to that as I love to push the envelope but….here it is in black and white! With that cleared out of the way, here’s a question for you. Should a “list of resolutions” be created or should it be made as one goes along? What are your thoughts? Are you a “resolution maker”? What are some of your resolutions or to do items? Are they an edited version and why did you edit?
Join in the discussion and have fun! Meanwhile, here’s wishing everyone a blessed and joyful New Year. Hugs and much love, Sadia
